Why Japanese Used Engines are so famous ? Good Quality vehicles made by Japanese manufacturers like Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Lexus etc serve as a paradigm that have made these Engines from Japan popular, these are also called JDM Engines that come from Japanese domestic market. They are supposedly low mileage and very well maintained due to the strict laws in place in Japan. Stamp of " Made in Japan" is very prestigious in automobile market. Higher Quality standards of Japanese products have earned good name for Japan. In the market of Used Motors for Japanese brands like Honda, Toyota, Nissan etc most prefer the used ones imported from Japan.
Problem that most people face is that there are very few importers and the supply is very limited. We have our own office in Osaka Japan and we make sure each engine is hand picked and loaded in our containers. With 35 years of experience of exporting all over the world, our office in Japan has a solid network of dealerships that supply our engines. We load only the best Engine & Transmission only after it is tested.
Exchange rate between Japanese Yen & US dollar plays an important role in pricing of these engines. Whole of 2008 through 2011 US dollar & Japanese Yen exchange rate has been around US$1= Y80 to Y90. Due to stronger Yen imports from Japan are little expensive but this hasn't changed the mind of consumers. Yen is a bit weaker in 2013 to US$1= Y100 which have eased the prices a bit.
Once our Engines & Transmissions are unloaded, we run Compression, Leak down & Oil Pressure test on our engines. Each Engine is steam washed in our environmentally friendly parts washer before it is shipped. We assure our customers that they will receive only those motors that have been fully tested. We import on an average two containers a month from Japan.
